US Congresswoman trolled for taking off glasses to watch solar eclipse

The United States Congresswoman, Sheila Jackson Lee, has been trolled on social media for taking off her protective glasses to watch the solar eclipse on Monday.

Jackson Lee who is a member of the Democrat Party representing Texas’s 18th Congressional District in the House of Representatives, also said people can live inside the moon.

She said: “The moon is made up mostly of gases, so we can soon live inside it, unlike the sun which is almost too hot to go near.”

However, in an X post on Tuesday, she said: “Obviously I misspoke and meant to say the sun, but as usual, Republicans are focused on stupid things instead of stuff that really matters.

“What can I say though, foolish thinkers lust for stupidity!”

The 74-year-old became a subject of trolls after popular X account, End Wokeness posted a picture of her looking at the eclipse with her glasses down.

The caption of the post read: “How the hell is this woman in Congress?”

The post didn’t go well with many Americans, who were told you can’t look at the eclipse without dark-shaded glasses.
